or Friday afternoon between 3-4p. The attending is on call that weekend and doesn’t really want to come in.More often than not with EMS the flights wind up at the evening hour and go through the backside of the dial. Ever notice how we start getting busy right near hospital's shift change?
There really is no rhyme or reason. When I was at a community-based op, the night shift usually flew more. Now at the hospital-based one, the day shift does. Then again, we have done 3 flights in one night.
